We will no doubt be...

This was the first time my wife and I had visited the Blue Boar, having booked afternoon tea with glass of prosecco. Rural location, adequate parking. Food was good, service friendly, and overall the atmosphere very pleasant. Will be going again.

Booked an overnight half term stay after visiting Warwick Castle and booked a family room. Surprisingly this was a large divided room so the children could sleep separately and is far better than a chain can offer. The room could probably have done with decorating but it was fine for our purposes. The bar is very pleasant and on the...

We booked two nights through Hotels.com (so reduced) purely as my other half was starting a new job in the area. Looked at the reviews which seemed ok. Lady who greeted us was friendly and efficient. We were given the key to room 12, a double as requested. A good sized room (an L shape) but very poor lighting -...

We found the staff to be very friendly and accomodating. The room was a very good size and was warm and clean. We didn't have dinner but the cooked breakfast was delicious and the coffee was quite nice. This is a very charming inn a short distance to Stratford-Upon-Avon.

We hadn't been into the Blue Boar for some time but on a friend's recommendation we thought we would give it a try for lunch. The new manager has transformed the whole feel of the place. The bar looked inviting, with tables laid ready to eat. The menu is good with a varied range options. We chose a cold meats...

“Don't choose room 12!!!”
  • The light was great - damage left from removing the old one, not so great.
  • Bath overflow. Yuk
  • Shower unit above bath overflow. Double yuk.
  • Wash Hand basin - cracked and off-putting
